Photos: Adrien Broner edges Paulie Malignaggi via split-decision to become three-division champion


Photos from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York as Adrien “The Problem” Broner (27-0, 22 KO’s) wins a split-decision over Paulie Malignaggi (32-5, 7 KO’s) to capture the WBA welterweight championship.


The Showtime-televised affair was a close battle, with Malignaggi having more success than some expected, yet Broner’s precise punching and superior power carried many of the rounds over the second half of the fight.
